Wore out three sets of tires already!

My wife prefers mans bikes but we saw this woman's Schwinn in a Goodwill store years ago, $5 as I recall. She wanted to throw it away last year, in red dirt part of basement of her parents house which she sold.
I bring it here, clean it up, lube, new tires. I use it to ride to our mailbox. Today it's freezing but the paved road we live off of there's no traffic so I take a ride. All at once my right foot hurts like h***. My tennis shoe laces somehow caught, winding around the petal at the crank!
I couldn't pedal backwards because of the coaster brake. Anything I did made it worse. I couldn't get the shoe off and no knife. Then I thought about Captain Ahab, and I was now strapped to Moby Dick! That was about the time in struggling I fell over into some thick bushes, bike and all. Someday I thought someone would find a tanglement of skeleton, bike and heavy clothes.
Finally I managed to get just enough slack to get my laces untangled.
Just call me Ishmael!

Sounds like you had a hell of a day. Laces in pedals are an adventure.

Took the Flightliner out this fine cold afternoon. This is nice little store. Been here since the beginning of time , across from the drag strip. Good beer prices.

The park road was half closed off. So I only used half the park

OUCH!!! Glad you are ok. As a matter of fact I was thinking of the possibility of my shoe lace getting tangled and began a few days ago to double tuck them suckers under the cross lacing as a safety measure. I don't know how you guys ride in that cold weather. It was 50F earlier this afternoon and got as far as the end of the driveway and came back. It was blowing a good 15-20 mph so it felt to me like in the 30s.:fearscream:

Finished out with the view of the snow capped Idyllwild mountians behind the palms at the 18th hole. Great ride.

Ran into this dude jammin' away. Transitioned straight from "my way" into "bridge over troubled water". Crazy how many more people - including myself - are willing to give a buck to someone who brings a smile to your face.

This one is for all of the Midwest/East Coast guys who think we’ve always got it good out here in California.
Mid 50’s with a cold rain on the way. Burrr!

I can’t top the brews that @fordmike65 posts, but I have been known to down a few Pizza’s now and then.
Happy Birthday, Louisa!

I made it to and from work before any rain fell on me today.
I pedaled home into the headwind towards the beach in shorts and t-shirt; not cold.:cool:

Really glad to pedal my bike.
Some folks really look at me going by; like they've never seen anything like it, LOL.:tearsofjoy:

Thanks to @zedsn for sending me the saddle parts I needed. Last night I finally got the red paint off the pieces I needed and today I went for a ride. I still need to adjust the angle a little, but its comfy already. :)

It’s been a few weeks since I rode and it felt great to be back on my bike. Work filled my life for the past few weeks and it was nice seeing the sky and feeling the wind again.

Need to replace the fraying rear shifter cable, other than that rides very nice.
GOOD RIDE
